Improving global governance
Sep 28, 2020 | European Center for Development Policy

Policy coherence for development (PCD) refers to the need for policies in different sectors to work in unison rather than in opposition to each other, to advance international development. In this note for the European Center for Development Policy’s Horizon2020 CASCADES project, James Mackie outlines measures taken by the EU and its member states to promote policy coherence since this goal was introduced in the EU Treaty in 1992, including EU responses to the UN’s 2030 Agenda, the Better Regulation package of the Juncker Commission and the Von der Leyen Commission’s Green Deal. It derives lessons for efforts to promote EU policy coherence in response to the cascading effects of climate change. />
